20th June 2021 – Ill Health & Idiosycrasies

Hey Twisties,

I’m back today with another really short, casual and light-hearted post. I’ve got another snack tasting to go up later so I didn’t want to give you all too much to read in one day. Unfortunately, that post should have gone up last night but I had to postpone it until today. I’m not quite sure why, but I came over nauseous and quite generally unwell last night, so I had to turn in early. I don’t think it was anything too sinister, I think it was more than likely me being too warm (we discovered this morning that our central heating has been kicking in!) and I was feeling a touch of heatstroke. Fortunately, I’m feeling much more like my old self today, if just a little behind on things. I did some aquascaping (like gardening, but underwater!) today and made a plan for our garden when that eventually happens. There’s not much keeping this girl down for long!

Today, I thought we’d have a little chat about those quirky little things we do that make us. us. Everyone has one, so what’s yours? I’ll go first.

Anytime I get offered a cold spicy snack, I blow on it. Even if I’m told “it’s not hot”, I instinctively blow on it. Why? Because my brain is thinking not hot, as in not thermally hot – my brain just doesn’t think there’s any other meaning that “hot” can mean!

Oh, and while you’re here, if you want an additional giggle, check out what I’ve been doing for the past week. I’ve been dating my posts fine, but on my header images, I’ve been writing March. I think a year of lockdown isolation got me good đŸ˜€

Alright lovelies, that’s it from me for now. What are your quirky habits? Don’t forget to share and let’s all have a giggle together!

Until next time,

Stay safe & have fun,

Helen & Matt xx

  1. Hmm, quirky habits. I know I have some, but it’s hard to think of them on the fly. I always eat one food at a time on my plate, and I always divide chewed food equally to the right and left side of my mouth. It bothers me otherwise. Also, when I eat something easily countable, I eat the same amount in every bite. Like if it’s a cereal that’s large enough pieces, I’ll always eat 2 or 4 or 6 and divide them evenly on the sides of my mouth. Weird!

    1. Wow, I don’t think I know anyone else that does that. I know that I have certain organisational habits, like my books have to be in size order and seeds and spices have to be in alphabetical order. I actually get a bit wound up if there’s a ‘B’ where ‘P’ should be!

  2. I hope that you feel better soon – it’s been unbelievably hot here too and it’s making it hard for me to sleep. A quirky/annoying habit I have that I’ve been trying to shake? Before I can post a comment or reply to a comment anywhere on my blog or on someone else’s blog, I always have to read it out twice [once slowly spelling out the words, then one fast], then go over each colour in my logo to check the logo, check the timestamp for when the comment is published, then check that the comment can be liked and replied to – all just to prove to myself that the comment went through successfully. It takes FOREVER and I wish my stupid brain allowed me to move on without doing it everytime. I actually really like commenting on your blog because after I hit ‘send’ the comment gets sucked away into the void until you approve it so I can’t do my usual checks.

    1. Thank you. I had a very rough night last night because of the heat. It’s not even the heat I think that bothers me, it’s the lack of air flow. Matt has a tendency to put the fan so close that it’s like gale force winds when you’re trying to sleep, but just a very light and gentle breeze would be better than still air. Ooh that’s quite a process. I normally just proof-read once or twice and then click send, and then still usually make a mistake haha. I’m still not happy with my profile tagline thing and it’s something that I’ve been meaning to change, but my mind is full of so many things as of late that I just keep forgetting to do it.
